The news services announced that the character Nakatani Ichiro died on 
the 1st at the age of 73. Nakatani debuted in film in 1955 and appeared 
in a variety of films, ranging from Harakiri to Toei yakuza movies. He 
was a particular favorite of Okamoto Kihachi and appeared in dozens of 
his films. He was also a regular on the Mito Komon TV series for over 
20 years.

(By the way, the KineJun database gives his name as Nakaya, but the 
obits state it as Nakatani. Is this another KineJun mistake?)
